‘Bridge Brothers' explores the workers trying to save America's failing infrastructure

- President Donald Trump vowed to spend billions on infrastructure improvements while on the campaign trail and it was one of the few promises he made that elicited support from both sides of the aisle.

While originally calling for movement on spending within his first 100 days, the plan has lost steam with no official legislation proposed yet by the White House.

The impetus, aside from improving America’s crumbling roads and bridges, is job creation. And while states wait for funding on long-postponed projects, the faces of those who would most benefit are the focus of a new documentary called “Bridge Brothers.”

The brainchild of New York documentary filmmaker Matthew White, “Bridge Brothers” focuses on the men and women behind major renewal projects on notable bridges in Pennsylvania and the Empire State.

White joined FOX 5’s Jim Lokay on “The Final 5” to talk about the labor of love and what we could all learn about the people who keep America moving.
